I was working my way through the last of my models last week when I made the mistake of visiting Amazon. "Ooh! Allarielle for only $108!"

Like a mad-man, I decided to start Skaven as i'd said elsewhere, and as I am incapable of doing anything half way, I immediately traded for the Skaven half of three Dawn-Spire/Isle of Blood sets, as well as buying a mountain of Storm Vermin, Storm Fiends, Artillery, Doomwheels, etc...

So I am trying REALLY hard not to think about the volume of stuff I now need to turn out. I will say, I am debating regressing from washes, etc... to my old "dip" method which I used way back when I had to paint up 100+ Termgants, etc... for 40k. I'm think my dirty dirty Clan Rats MIGHT be appropriate for the old, rough, but decent quick paint-job, and dunk in Min-Wax trick. :-p

I did start in earnest though. This week I started and am about 90% done with two Warlocks, two Engineers, and all of the Weapon Teams (six Warpfire, six Poison Wind Mortarts).

Dipping is fine. Im trying to learn to become a really good painter. But I dipped most of my ghouls because painting 15 isnt fun. I want able to finish them in hours.
Just make sure you use some technicals. Maybe over the blades put some typhus corrosion and drybrush some ryza rust.
Take some Ryza Rust, make a wash out of it, put on one some helms and shields. Same with the Oxides. and a Little blood for the blood god will go along way

Well, i'm going to paint them properly, so I suppose i'm more like half-dipping. I'll use that to handle most of my washing, etc... but i'll get decent basecoats on it first.

Also, i'm weirdly fond of the Nurgle Rot technical paint, so i'll probably find some use for it somewhere in there too. :-p

So I've more or less finished assembly of a Kharadron frigate and 50 arkanaut company. The next task to to finish making molds for the skyhook weapon option so I can make the copies I need to fully equip them. I have to say though there is an astonishing amount of detail in the frigate kit, stuff like a hinge where a portion of the guard rail opens up or a pressure valve next to the navigator is all over the place, in a good way. Though it bothers me a bit that the frigate seems about 20% too small for the crew to move around properly.

Count as Harbinger of Decay for my Rotbringers AoS army. The current model is kinda of horrendous. I view nurgle as bloated and swollen, not starving and emaciated. I understand that point of view.. its just not for me.

So I had the idea of a plague drone centaur type of thing. The first picture shows the posture. I later removed the long tongue, added a mouth from the Maggorth lords kit, with a small portion of the other tongue variant. I think I'm going to model a small sword or knife being wielded by the tongue. Next I went about crafting the torso. I starting working on it and realized I was headed towards a slim and trim/ripped harbinger. Definetley going to work on making him have a gut, bloated and gross. Maybe using one of the non armored blightkings torso and working it in with greenstuff.

They're the Vanguard Palladors, which suit the knight in plate armour the best IMO. Brown Gryphs are probably the best colour for them too, as the flashier colours (turquoise etc) are a bit of an eyesore. Going for a chivalry theme like jousters sounds quite awesome actually.

Thanks man. Picked out the stitching on the pants with a dark brown to add some detail and also fixed the mould-line under his chin that had collected the Agrax Earthshade wash I used on the skin.
Agree re model quality. Not my favorite sculpt but I used this guy as a demented surgeon-turned-psychopath in my DnD campaign and had a ton of fun with that story arc, so he earns some sentimental points in my book.

Ready for going out onto Warhammer Live this Wednesday to play some AoS Skirmish, I converted and painted 3 handgunners to be from the dark and polluted city of Greywater Fastness! (Plus a loyal Gryph-Hound)




The conversions are Freeguild Archer bodies, Freeguild Handgunner arms, Wildwood Ranger heads, and backpacks made from Outrider bits. Really happy with the conversions, not too sure I pulled off the dark blue coats effectively.

This just makes up a small part of the warband, which is as follows:

Yeah, those mushrooms are pretty cool. If you want to make bases more interesting without changing them too much, try playing with the elevation by glueing pieces of sprue or rocks down before covering them with sand or texture paint. Then continue as normal.

How DARE you contest the quality of Bottle's miniatures! I shocked, SHOCKED, that someone would have the audacity to criticise such marvelous works of art!

Status update on my edgetastic Sylvaneth: progress was smooth and I'm ready to start priming. I have this lingering concern because for the first time in a long time I'm going to be using the terrain paints as intended and not slathering it on before priming. As a consequence they look super bare right now and I constantly have to remind myself that they'll look less busy up top once the bases are painted covered with bushes, mounds of dirt, and water effects. But it's hard.

Anyway, here are some pictures I took while packing them for their exciting field trip to the hobby store, where I can prime them and catch up on our league.

I got to see Drycha fully built on launch day and decided I wanted her to look distinct. Originally it was just going to be a re-pose, then it was a head-swap to differentiate it from the other unpainted drycha that was seeing play in the store (Dry-chan vs Drycha-cha iirc) and I got to thinking I could fill in some of the hornets' nests covering her body to make it look more like a real one that's only partially slouched off. But after implementing it I decided I'd rather have it all look like gnarled bark. Her armour is held on with blue-tac right now, if it looks a little bulkier than it should.


I got the spite revenants at the same time as Drycha, at the time I picked them over tree-revenants due to their rules and there was a real sense that you had to pick one of them and commit. Some odd effect of them being the same kit and similar names despite this very different roles. The idea was they'd accompany Drycha and the dryads and together act as a big nasty tarpit while my wild riders picked off the real nasty stuff. In practice people would just avoid attacking whatever unit I'd casted shield of thorns on in lieu of everything else,they ended up evolving into a dryad tarpit with drycha tackling a big blob by herself and the spites positioning themselves somewhere to maximize their spooky terrain effect. I suppose their theme is 'exile is no excuse not to take care of your hair.'


Inversely, the Kurnoth Hunters come from my 'great ideas stolen from the internet' collection. I spent so much time gradually accepting the way Kurnoth's look that I finally stopped worrying about it and went looking for painting advice for them, only to be immediately blown away by amazing conversion work done by someone for their all-revenant themed army. Though I stole the idea, I ended up paying enough in blood trying to re-engineer it, let me tell you...


The theme for the tree-revenants is 'oh no, you used all your tree revenant parts for other projects!'

... Actually because I had used the hair for Drycha and the spites I had it in my head to try something different with them from the get-go. A restless dead theme gelled well with both my army's backstory and generally what tree-revenants are. I asked around the store for what units would be suited to the way they behave on the field and they all said 'skirmishers'. Then, later, patiently, they explained to the Sigmar baby that I am what skirmishers were in fantasy and what units were skirmishers.


My branchwych and Mistweaver Saih. The former is meant to bridge the sylvaneth look and the centaur theme of my wood elf army. I... may redo her at a later date, but I'll can't seem to find an angle where she looks good in a picture. She's remarkably unphotogenic. The mistweaver is a case study in how to fix a badly executed idea with liberal application of green stuff.


And another shot of my twisted treelord ancient. I realized later that I never took a picture of his face dead-on. Wearing the Durthu face like a mask modifies the treelord's facial profile in a really cool way, I feel.


I also turned the wildwood trees into little stumps that will have smaller magnetic tree branches growing out of them, used the excess tree parts to wood-up my bale wind vortex. But I forgot to take a picture of it.

Finished up my counts-as Screaming Skull Catapult for my Death army:











If you're wondering why it's covered in all these strange, rat-like scribblings, know that this mighty war machine was shamelessly stolen from the Kingdom of the Broken Chains' armoury by the insidious Skaven not long after the Kingdom's undead inhabitants slipped into their centuries-long slumber. After his re-awakening in the present era, the King set to reclaim all that once belonged to him, and thus hunted down the descendants of the Skaven thieves, taking back his war machines after a short but unnervingly brutal skirmish.

It was most definitely not a consequence of my haste to get this model finished.

Obviously.



Jokes aside, I had a lot of fun painting this thing, although it was a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. Originally, I was going to stick it on a square base to match the rest of the army, but it just looked so much better on the oval base it came with, so I went with that one instead

I too am working on a Kharadron army, did some minor conversion work on my skyvessels to show battle damage & repairs. This is from the Ironclad (there is a crewman who goes on the end of the support and will be repairing the damage, with the improvised blast shield offering him some protection). The detail is a bit fuzzy because phone camera, but the green stuff around the edges of the blast shield 'base' is sculpted to look like welding.


Oooh, looks promising. As for my progress on the overlord fleet that I've started working on since late may, most of the assembly is already done, missing a ship or two but most of the crew is accounted for. Only the color scheme is amiss, but I was thinking of olive jumpsuits, with brass armor similar to Barak-zilfin

Been working on my Sylvaneth army, the Seelie Court. I'm going for a Spring them. Here's a quick sample of what I've done so far:



Treelord Ancient



A simple Branchwraith conversion kitbashed from a Branchwych and some Spite Revenant bits.

Post by: Captain Joystick


So I've got a few league games under my belt (We've moved into the tournament stage now.) and I'm comfortable again with AoS in general and the way this army plays in particular. Some things I agonized about picking ended up being shockingly effective, to the point where I don't think I'll take the treelord ancient as anything other than this (so far) unkillable tank build that's served me so well.

Beyond that, I finally got them primed. I decided to try a zenithal progression from black to grey to white using the spray cans. And overall I'm satisfied with the results, though they're a bit inconsistent between the smaller models I did in a larger batch and the larger models that got more individual attention. It's a good starting point though, and I'll be careful to keep my paints thin.











I'm more and more convinced I want to do the branchwych again. That said, propping her up on a balewind vortex with a silverwood circlet has been amazing. This magic rock concert has been neutering dangerous threats while they've been in combat with my dryads line, blocked enemies from getting to objectives, and, memorably, once wiped out an entire trebuchet crew after it almost killed her before she got to put it up. I kind of expect they'll increase its points because holy gak, but don't ever let them change it's effects.

Thanks! Every model in my force (only 9-strong right now) has a bare head, other than a lone Prosecutor which is stock, and a Lord Relictor that has a Retributor head which will have the facemask painted flesh to look like it's an open-faced helm. Tried to have each face fit with the model's posture, to give them all a unique character.

It's probably a bit of a slap in the face to those who hate that Space Marine sergeants always end up in combat without a helmet, lol.

These are the first of the multipart ones I've assembled, having just dealt with the easy fit versions before. I've given them meatripper axes and it's my intention to make this a full unit of 40. The overall plan is to have 3 units of 40 (two with reaver blades and this one with axes). With light troops like this you either go big or go home.

Here's a couple of the forces I am pulling off the shelves to finish for some skirmish games. The first are my Orcs; I've had a love affair with orcs for a long time now, I don't really know why, maybe it's all the green? I'm particularly fond of the boyz with bows, they are the monopose plastics from the Warhammer starter about 12 years ago? Also my warboss is the leader from the old metal Regiments of Renown crossbow regiment, bought with a sprue of the Arrer Boyz and the dual-choppa boyz back when GW had a bitz section of their online store. As I said, this warband has been in progress for a pretty long time!




The other warband are my latest acquisition of Skaven from the Gencon of last year and the year before. There's this awesome seller there that has about 50 Rubbermaid tubs of single miniatures to sift through, I don't think any model in this force cost me more than $1.50, other than the Warlord and Rat Ogre which ran about $5 each. (The Grey Seer doesn't count, that was bought as the full blister for me by my wife for last Christmas.)

Normally my armies have a good amount of conversion work, but for my Kharadrons I'm going to focus on some really cool base work. While of course they will never live up to the shocking majesty that is Bottle's bases, I'm hoping they will at least look OK. With that goal in mind I started work on basing my Endrinrigger unit champion:





The terrain will have a monsoon-desert-jungle sort of thing so models will often be cutting through vegetation that has burst up from the ground. This should give me plenty of options for suspending the models without needing to use clear plastic.

After seven games at Warhammer World last weekend, it turns out that while you can make a Skirmish force from the contents of Silver Tower, it's not a very good one. The Gaunt Summoner or a Pink Horror can pick off a few Stormcast with Arcane Bolt, but then the daemons and Tzaangors get mashed to a pulp by angry hammers. Back to the High Elves, I think.

What I've nearly fully finished for my Kharadron Overlords. The warplock bronze on the armor is going to be drybrushed lightly in a copper color and the rest will be actually shaded and highlighted as appropriate. I simply only had a few busy days to finish these.

Ran these guys in skirmish and just sorta won the day. The admiral and gunnery sergeant (or should I say his drillbeak) certainly proved their worth during the matches.

All the rest of my forces are still being worked on, but I have a 2000 point army lined up to be finished by the end of the month for a 2v2 and 2000 points per person tourney.

The drill beak killed about 9 models by itself. The admiral killed more or less 90% of the rest.

Also thanks! The gold was a bit of a debate on my end, but I wasn't using that much of the color and I thought silver gloves with silver weapons would be weird. 10 man company squads all with golden swords and gun barrels is really striking though. You can pick out easily all the blades before being able to distinguish different models.

Thanks bro (and great to see you back here!) the grey is one coat of Administratum Grey over white undercoat, washed with a 3:1 mix of Lahmian Medium and Agrax Earthshade and then immediately highlighted with Ulthan Grey.

They could be if you decide to paint and highlight on every single detail. The models have a LOT of detail on them. However even the GW painted minis don't have that detail of effort on them.

Going to the AoS event at warhmmer world next weekend. Currently in panic mode - my original army was made and getting painted, but after some test games it was clear I was never going to get games finished in the time available or remember all the abilities etc. Last minute decision to do another smaller easier army with less funky abilities (that I won't forget about or spend long thinking about).

Half done half still on the sprue. 1 week to go :(

Friend of mine did the cloak. The big thing left is the face, and I am thinking of making it look like the Wight still has rotten skin left, rather than painting a pure bony face. I went for a Blood Dragon styled armor, leaving the mail and the sword clean and well kept.

Next model is my Count's Champion, went for a Carroburg Greatsword scheme, I am only missing a black metallic paint to finish the armor he'll be done.

I am a lot more pleased with the fur of the cloak, especially compared to the one on the Wight King, which I kinda messed up. The green on the laurel crown was delibaretly made this way to look faded and worn out.

The Overlords displayed as a painted army look fantastic. As I wrote before, I love the look, just not sure I'm up for the challenge. The amount of area to cover just for basecoats on the ships looks immense, forget about highlighting etc.

Yeah those ones there are entirely unhighlighted. You can't tell, but I also haven't added the little runes to the boats or their shoulder pads. It can be a lot of work, but damn do they look great on a table or in a display case.

I'm hoping my skaven look that good when they're done though. Skaven was honestly my true passion project army, I just got side tracked by other things thinking their rules were far too outdated (which was wrong..and even more wrong now).

Thanks BK! They are a Grundstock Mercenary outfit that sells their services to the Free Cities which is why they don't wear the colours of a known Skyport and instead have a more military look. They won't ever be a whole army but a growing contingent in my larger Freeguild/Mixed Order army.

And the tournament is going well. Won Best Painted on the Friday Skirimish event with my Bloodbound (up against Ben Johnson's incredible Stormcast of White Dwarf fame, so really happy to get that).

Right now I am half way through the main event, sitting on 2 Major Wins and 1 Major Loss (wow, Murder Host is brutal). These Endrinriggers were the MVP in the first game and I pulled off the one thing I dreamed of doing with them. Total Conquest, I am getting beaten by a Tzeentch army but holding onto my objectives. They move off one of theirs for the killing blow, but before it is delivered the Endrinriggers grapnel hooks onto a bit of terrain and zips them onto a back objective scoring me 2 VPs that got me the win! Super happy with them!

It's been a while since I worked on my Skeleton army, but now that I've got another tournament coming up, I found the necessary motivation to finally put my copy of SC: Skeleton Horde together. One could question whether or not that's such a good idea, as the reason I stopped working on them in the first place was being horrendously defeated in a tournament.

Oh well. You live and you learn, right?

Anyways, I decided to run my skeletons as Tomb Kings this time, with a Tomb King on Exalted Chariot as my General. Problem was, I didn't have a model for him yet, and the Mortarch model didn't feel appropriate for the job (and it's ridiculously complicated to put together), so I had to improvise a little...

Behold, the Grand Hierarch of the Forgotten Tombs!







What do you all think? Is this an appropriate stand-in for Not-Settra?

Sweet models, AegisGrimm, EnTyme and Pensfan!

I've been working on my Vampire Counts-gone-Tomb-Kings army some more, in an attempt to get everything ready for the tournament next Saturday. So far, I've finished up 5 more Skeleton Warriors (with some help from the girlfriend), and built the 10 other Skeleton Warriors I needed to fill out the unit. Forgot to take pictures of the undead buggers, though

Also, I've been playing around with the contents of the Thunder & Blood starter box that recently came into my possession, trying figure out what I want to do with the lot. I've decided to use the Chaos half to bulk out my Hosts of Slaanesh army, and to create a small warband for AOS Skirmish. The Skirmish warband will consist of a couple of Chaos Warriors and some Marauders, all converted to fit the warband's fluff (which I'm still working out).

Here's a pic of one of the first members of the warband, a converted Chaos Warrior:



The inspiration for this conversion came from the lovely fellows at Wargamers' Workbench, who have created some awesome Nurgle Chaos Warriors out of the Blood Warriors. However, they did commit foul heresy by not including the Warriors' fancy capes (I don't blame them, though; attaching the cape to the body was a bloody nightmare), but I'm sure Nurgle will be able to forgive them for that

Picked up an old Great Taurus for my beast woman army. I kind of went to town with the green stuff. I hope to have it painted before the end of the week.




I have also been working on this since before the second edition book dropped. It was going to be a stand in for Gorthor the Beastlord. Sadly Gorthor became the generic Beastlord on Chariot, which would have been fine except that they took away the brayherd keyword. So the majority of the time this model is on the table top it will probably just be a standard beastman chariot. Needless to say this one is going to take a bit longer to get painted.

I finally got my Overlords. One of each ship, a troops, a grundstock, skywarden, admiral, and navigator. I'll get to work modelling these next month and have them ready to paint over Canadian winter.

Now to plan out my Barak Mhornar theme. Mostly the metals on the ship's hull I need to consider as well as their underside pattern I am going to paint on. I think the classic vertical striped look would go best with the raiders of this barark but now I'm trying to think what colours would compliment their existing ones shown in the book.

A whole starter force like Mongoose? Uhhh, no. I have 2 kids under 3 years old, so I was thoroughly pleased to paint a single Retributor. It's taken me over three months to paint a 'skirmish' force of 11 Stormcast models. Here's the previous 10:

Hello,

So i have been playing 40k for a couple of years, but Fantasy have always interested me. And especially Skaven after i read their Codex. Man i love those rats, and the fluff is amazing.

I don't know much about Age of Sigmar yet, but ill get into it slowly i guess. Anyway. My project is apparently a HUGE Skaven army.

So wouldnt you know it. A store who were selling figures shut down near me. So a lot of stuff were on sale with great prices and i bought a few Skaven boxes for about 150 dollars or a bit over maybe. And when i say good prices, i mean seriously good prices!

Some say we shouldn't buy in bulks but i couldnt resist. This is what i got.

Yea, a lot of work. But i think it will be a lot of fun! And the Island of blood box is only the half. I don't intent to paint the High Elfs, so i will probably sell them.

But theses boxes are a bit old. They come with square bases and not the new round ones. Should i try to aquire round bases or should i just keep the square ones? What do you think. Will it cause truble?

Unless your gaming group has a restriction on square bases, that's really more of a personal preference. I don't care for square/rectangles, so I always go out of my way to rebase on rounds, but that's just me. Plus I somehow ended up with around 100 spare 25mm-40mm bases at one point, so I have plenty to use.

You should go to the rounds. It affects how many models can get into melee range over a given area, so you could have an advantage since the squares have a smaller footprint.

Aye, squares have an advantage over rounds, in addition to rounds just looking better in AOS. Rounds just make sense, especially when starting a new army so you don't need to rip off old bases or anything like that.

Seems everyone is for round bases. Then i gotta get some round bases. I did always like the regiment look they had with square bases

And you are probably right, better that i round base them now, as i just started up. Less problems later if anyone have a problem with it.

I won't be surprised if measuring to the base becomes the official rule rather than a "suggested house rule". If that happens, rounds will be the standard. As long as you have access to them, that's the way I would go.

I've been working on my Slaves to Darkness Skirmish warband some more, although progress is rather slow due to the large amount of cutting needed to make everything fit. Today I worked on the warband's leader, the Dread Marshal (working title).



In Skirmish games, I'll be running him as Not-Slambo, if my opponent permits it, of course. I'm not sure what to do with his torso though; should I leave the Khorne rune as it is, or should I replace it with something less god-specific?

I also made some progress on the second Chaos Warrior, and on the Khorgorath:

I don't know why I can't just leave a model alone..but uh..have a coming together zombie dragon..covered in plant life..on a tree. Local game store is having a monster mash themed free for all near halloween so I thought it was the perfect time to finish off my Sylvaneth army with their, intended from the beginning, centerpiece model. Then I can get back to my backlog again..hopefully.









Enjoy! This one should be finished up easily enough once the friggin base comes in. I have plaaans for it..and maybe some of the 60 dryads I don't actually need.

It starts off with a basecoat of retributor armor mixed with about 50% vallejo model air tank brown (any dark brown should do though). I airbushed that one, but you really need a large-ish nozzle and good thinning to airbrush GW metallics.

Then zenithal highlight of pure Retributor armor, followed by a mix of retributor armor and silver (same applies for big nozzle and adequate thinning.

It's all given a coat of Armypainter quickshade strong tone.

Then a layer of dullcote, followed by an edge highlight of pure silver and some micro-sratches here and there.

Eye-coloring is easy peasy. A drop of Guilliman Glaze in the eye sockets which were left Ceramite White. Let it start dry and kind of 'tease' it out a bit with a toothpick.

The cape might need a rework if it looks blood soaked...it's meant to be a purple that's faded over time.

If you're looking for faded purple, I would suggest a gradient into a pale pink (something like Fulgrim Pink) and fading into a fleshy color like Kislev Flesh.
